Holiday Inn Express & Suites in Thornton is our host hotel. They offer a room discount. This hotel was built in 2011/2012, so the amenities are new and very nice. It is 6.6 miles from the Start/Finish (approximately 10 minute drive at 5:30 am on a Saturday) and 7.7 miles from the packet pick-up (see FAQ page). It is 0.3 miles (5 minute walk) to a Fazoli’s, 0.7 miles to Olive Garden, and for those of you who prefer Colorado fare, there is a Noodle & Co 2.4 miles away - all 3 are east of the hotel on 120th Street. The hotel is just off of Interstate 25, so it is easy to get to. They provide a “Grab-and-Go” breakfast. You can find the hotel on the “Links” tab above. Their link will automatically give you the room discount.
